Marymount offers its students a delicious, healthy, balanced, high-quality and nutritious lunch which draws inspiration from the Mediterranean diet for which Italy is famous. Lunch is universally offered on a complimentary basis to all students, faculty and staff by the School, as it is intended to be a moment of sharing and bonding within the school community.
The dining room includes live-cooking stations with grilled meat, fish and cheese options, a wok station, an extensive salad buffet, first and main course areas (that include vegan and vegetarian options), healthy sandwiches, freshly-squeezed fruit and vegetable juices, a pizza oven featuring freshly-baked breads and pizzas made with organic and whole-grain flours each day.
A typical lunch consists in a daily option of pasta and rice that may be eaten plain with extra virgin olive oil or with a light tomato sauce, meat or fish, fruits and vegetables. The kitchen uses many organic ingredients (i.e. pasta, home-made bread and pizza) and extra virgin olive oil.
Students with allergies are carefully monitored by the School Nurse, and special lunch options are made readily available to those with gluten, lactose and any other food intolerance. The kitchen is a completely peanut-free environment.
